Ok, what happened was that I essentially stayed up all night long, and that’s unusual for me because I’m a 9-hour-a-night sleeper, if not 9, then 10. However, I would not recommend staying up all night either; it’s hard on the body, possibly even traumatic. And it takes a few days to get over.

So then, stop talking and say why you damned fool. I was on this 50s Memories website because I was born in the 1950s and had occasional nostalgic twinges. Plus, I was invited to it by my sister-in-law. So I checked it out to be polite and joined up. My peers, after all.

I was checking out the 50s Memories website a couple of days ago when I saw this fantastic picture. It was of 4 1950s women, standing in a row, dressed in fabulous 1950 dresses, and they were all pointing handguns straight at the camera. Also, they were all giving deadeye looks. It was so cute that I couldn’t resist commenting on it.

All I said was, and this is paraphrased because the 50s people deleted my post, so I no longer have any access to it; that’s what kept me awake all night. I wasn’t even angry, more like stimulated, and I wrote all night long.

What I said was that only women and not men should be allowed to carry guns so that criminal behavior would be way down. It was a smart-ass remark, done because I thought it was amusing, also because I genuinely believe it and have said it before. Anyway, there was a firestorm within a couple of hours – I pissed off a lot of people, it seems.

To be entirely fair, though, opinion was divided and a lot of people, men as well as women, enjoyed and appreciated the comment. Unfortunately, since I am now censured by a website of a couple of million people, I don’t have any statistics on the matter. Before I got cut off, though, I had over 300 comments and likes within 2 or 3 hours.

It was every writer’s dream. I might have even gone viral. But there were supposedly many complaints that the remark was political, and the 50s Memories people deleted my comment in a few short hours. Bullshit, I say to that. Bullshit!

I don’t know what the administrator was thinking, but I believe that websites like traffic, the more, the better. Not the 50s Memories people – they booted my ass toot sweet. And that is why I stayed up all night.
